Sprint: Samsung Epic 4G Now Selling For $199 On Contract

by On

In anticipation of the impending onslaught of 4G Android smartphones from various carriers, Sprint has made a proactive move and cut the price of the Samsung Epic 4G. The powerhouse Galaxy S smartphone, with Android 2.1, a 4-inch Super AMOLED display, slider QWERTY keyboard, on the Sprint network has been selling for $250 on a two year contract ever since its launch in August, but an announcement via Twitter made consumers aware of a price change being implemented immediately. The Epic is now available for $199 on a two year contract, which matches it equally with the EVO. Another possible reason for the sudden price drop is due to the release of the HTC EVO Shift 4G, a quality 4G smartphone offered at an exceptional price point — $150 on contract. Anyone plan on picking up an Epic 4G now that it is $50 cheaper?
